Well, apparently I need a vacation after my European vacation! I’ve come home to a Real Life in which I have too much to do and not enough time to do it. The yard needs pruning, the house needs cleaning, my body needs exercise, friends need visiting, and this website needs lots of work behind the scenes.

Rather than try to spread myself to thin — my modus operandi — I’m going to do the wise thing: I’m going to take a break. For the next two weeks, I won’t be publishing anything new here at Get Rich Slowly. (I will, however, continue to send out the Friday emails. And I’ll continue to update the Spare Change section on the front page with cool links from other sites.)

While this isn’t an ideal solution, I think it’s best for the long-term. I have a lot of travel coming up later this summer. (I’m basically on the road from August 15th to October 15th.) If I don’t make time now to take care of things, I’ll wish I had.

So, go outside and enjoy the summer sun! I’ll see you again on July 1st.
